    My Experience and Growth As An Online Publisher

    I joined Pub 101 because I am an avid user of social media and have always wanted to publish myself and create an online identity in some way. More specifically, blogging was always something I wanted to get into, but never something I was able to bring to fruition, due to a lack of time, knowledge, and confidence. However, as mentioned in the introduction of my blog, I came to realize that I need to spend more time on things that bring me joy; essentially creating more of a work-life balance.

    Following Up

    Process Post #7 I have made a few changes based on the peer review I received from Brianna Carniel. First off, she expressed that my website would look more cohesive if I removed “the exclamation marks around [my] About Me and Contact Me pages”. That said, I made those changes as well as removed the one in my Introduction category under my Home page.

    My Audience

    Process Post #6 Chittenden (2010) expresses that “without having cues about who will view a post, an imagined audience provides a necessary way of envisioning who should be present” (p. 512). Therefore, at the beginning of my planning and designing process, when I created my vision board, I also imagined an audience that would be viewing the blog that I was about to create. That said, the audience I have been imagining for my blog has been people like me. I have thought or have wanted my content to reach out to females that are around my age group, such as young adults ranging from 17–25-year-olds. However, I am aware that…
